Tangerine-Marinated Olives (Aceitunas Alinadas Con Mandarina)

“Here's an enticing Moorish-inspired dish from Alicante. It's a great simple way to jazz up a bowl of olives. In Seville, a similar marinade would be made with the juice from bitter oranges-try it both ways. The longer the olives marinate, the tastier they get, so start ahead. Adapted from "The New Spanish Table" cookbook. Marinating time is not included in 'cook time'.”
